Outdoor Fabric Project Ideas: Protecting Your Grill & Furniture from the Arizona Sun

Sun Protection for Your Patio Furniture

In the intense Arizona weather, outdoor fixtures can be easily damaged if not taken care of properly. But don’t worry, here’s your guide to protecting your outdoor grills and furniture from the relentless Arizona sun using fabrics and services offered at Fabrics That Go.

Wax and Coating vs. Covers

Metal is commonly regarded as a durable material for outdoor furniture, and good quality plastic furniture can be regarded as durable and even cheaper.

But with the extreme weather conditions in Arizona, how can you keep your grills and furniture in their top condition?

There’s a lot of options out there when it comes to maintenance, such as paste wax for metal and protective coating for plastic, but the efficacy of their properties wane overtime.

Stylish Slipcovers for Cushions and Grills

You’d need something that’s durable and can withstand long periods of sun exposure, so take a look at some custom upholstery projects for covers.

An even better — and economical — option is to use furniture slipcovers. Covers are great for minimizing damage caused by stains, precipitation, and sun rays.

Make sure your covers are well-fitted, neither too tight or too loose, with enough space for air to avoid getting molds or mildew.

For grills and even spas, a cover helps with longevity and protects it from bugs, pests, and the weather. A good grill cover should be waterproof, weather-resistant, and fade-resistant.

With the added UV protection, this can keep your outdoor furniture from fading and cracking.

A grill can now duel as a seating area and table and protect your decorative wood or marble outdoor setting.

Invest in High Quality Fabrics

Dust, dirt, and grime can affect low quality fabrics significantly, requiring you to replace them often.

But with high quality fabrics like Sunbrella, you’d have one less thing to worry about. Because it’s fade-resistant and non-porous, it’s a great choice for outdoor furniture especially under the harsh Arizona sun.

Plus, it’s a versatile material, so there’s a lot of ways to use it, such as slipcovers for couches, lounge chairs, umbrellas, hammocks, and outdoor drapery. Check out our recent blog for a poolside furniture makeover with Sunbrella.
